Do you love climbing trees? I sure do. I grew up hanging out in the forest, climbing trees in dresses. I feel like it’s a big joke with some of our friends that I am always over dressed with inappropriate shoes on for whatever it is that we are doing. Yet, I am still the one who is the most eager to do whatever that is. I have always been a dressed up tomboy.

Isn’t this bright yellow skirt just the cutest? Love the pattern and cute bell shape to it. Did you guys have a nice long weekend? We spent the weekend up in Canada visiting family and saying good bye to my sister because she is moving to British Columbia. I will have lots of pictures to share, but I left my camera in my Dad’s car and have to wait to get it back. Bummer!

Have a great day everyone!

  2. Aww, that last photo is priceless. Rowan, even when not happy she’s a little cutie pie!! And as always I’m drooling over your beautifully creative & effortless style Jen – I adore everything about this outfit!! And?! Oooh, your sister is moving to BC, where to?! Perhaps you’ll get the chance to visit Vancouver sometime!! Enjoy your day, sweet girl. xo V

  3. love the floral/stripe mix. that picture of rowan crying is perty cute.

  4. Haha, I’m usually completely overdressed for wherever we go and then always regret my choice of clothes because I can’t ‘do’ anything. I think I need to take a leaf out of your book! 🙂 I love the mix of stripes with the florals too, and the yellow skirt is just so cute! Have a lovely week, Jen!

  5. Great shots. Agree yellow skirts really memerizes me, going gaga for that skirt of yours. Definitely noted. 🙂 diablo 3 accounts for sale

    That last picture of you & Rowan reminds me of all those awkward parenting moments: when your child starts screaming but only after the clerk starts checking you out, or when you are trying to gently slide them into the carseat at the park while they scream like you’re twisting their fingers & toes off, or when you are in the nursery at church listening to a message about generosity as your child screams “No, MINE!!” at a much younger baby wanting to share your child’s toys. All these moments to teach us about what it is to love. To lay down pride, impatience, & self comfort. Such a blessing He grants us when he gives us children!
    Oh, & I love the masculinity of the stripes juxtaposed against the cheery floral.

    p.s. Those Target shoes must have been worth the money – I swear I’ve seen them around since the teaching days in MA. Close to 2 years now…right?

  8. What a fun combination of patterns! I love the yellow skirt, it’s just perfect for summer.

  9. I love the subtle pattern mixing – though I think stripes are pretty neutral, as far as patterns go. You look so great – such a perfect summer outfit, and I love the neon citron with yellow!

  10. You are seriously the most adorable! And that picture of Rowan is hilarious! Why are crying babies still so cute? Lol
